A quick recap on this issue for the readers who were lost on this issue. Ten days before Apple released this patch, Comex of JailBreakme manage to jailbreak the likes of Apple devices such as iPad and iPhone by exploiting the iOS vulnerability.
Summary of JailBreakMe Before Apple’s Patch
The jailbreak process is extremely painless as it does not require any physical connection from your device to the computer. On top of that, even children who can understand simple English can also perform the jailbreak. If you are interested to know how simple is it to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad with JailBreakMe, you can refer to my post on how to jailbreak iPhone and iPad without plugging into your computer.
However, being able to easily jailbreak the device do raise a very high security concern to all the iPhone and iPad. That is why Apple released the iOS patch in a short period of ten days time.
